When you can’t quite put the name to the face. Have a meeting coming up with someone you haven’t spoken to for awhile? No worries, LinkedIn can help with that. Simply enable calendar sync so you can get notifications about who you’re meeting with next, and invite them to connect if they’re not already in your network. When your meeting ends, check your notifications for a reminder to follow-up.
